On April 27, 2012, B.C. native Thomas Gisby was gunned down in the coastal town of Neuvo Vallarta, Mexico. Gisby was shot twice in the head as he ordered at a Starbucks.

Police say Gisby was well-known to them, as the head of the Gisby Crime Group, which had criminal connections across Canada and around the world.

"This individual was highly ranked and probably thought he was at such a high level he was immune from both police prosecution and gang violence and clearly, today that's not the case," said RCMP Chief Supt. Dan Malo, head of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit.
